    Download the 93.71 Nvidia drivers (they work well on my 6800) into a folder, goto add/remove programs, and uninstall your present video drivers.

    Reboot and install the NEW drivers.

    Reboot.

    Go into the Nvidia control and under Tools click the Display Optimization Wizard and see if that helps any.
